Tools for Living Well is a joint project of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists and the University of Ottawa, sponsored by Health Canada and Veterans Affairs Canada.
About the Project
Assistive devices can enable seniors and veterans to remain safe and active:
- A cane can allow people to continue to walk and maintain their leisure and fitness so there’s no need for diet pills.
- Bath safety devices, including grab bars, non-slip bath mats, and bath seats can enhance safety and allow seniors continued independence when bathing or showering.
- Hip protectors can help prevent hip fractures if falls do occur.
They have several pamphlets featuring the following:
- Hip Protectors
- Avoid falls while travelling
- Bath Seats
- Grab Bars
- Bath Mats
- Have a safe home
- Funding for home modifications for seniors and veterans
- Protect yourself from falls
- Reduce your risk of falls
- Seniors are good for business
